The squeaked one out today which is a good thing, but the offensive problems are dramatic and widespread.

The pitching also picked a REALLY bad time to regress to 2013 levels.
In short, this has been one rough stretch - but at least didn't happen with a fully healthy roster and behind good pitching - THEN I'd really be concerned.

Always liked to change that to "A little bit country; a little bit rocky road."
Twins definitely know about the latter. I guess Dozier provides the former.
Sounds like a good description of Matthew LeCroy.
You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.

1. they aren't GOOD, they are ok (which is better than last year, btw)
2. the guys replacing the injured players are quite not good
3. they hit a stretch of really bad pitching
4. the lack of depth at AA and AAA is kiling them
